Photos from Swords Fingal 10km 2012 – Completed!

So, race 2 of the challenge is done and dusted. Great day in Swords for the Fingal 10km, albeit a bit warmer and more humid then we wanted. A few more tough hills in the mid sections then we’d hoped for too… but enough excuses and complaints! Really enjoyed the morning. Had superb support with loads of friends and family there running and some there to cheer us on too. Have to say well done to Stephen for an insane time of 45 minutes, to Aiden who did 48 minutes and Niall who did 48 minutes also…. impressive stuff. Ray did it in 55, even though he told me he missed some training … and there was me  happy enough with my time of 67 minutes, as I sit here with an ice pack on my knee! Regina and Arlene powered home and as you can see from the photos they had much more to give….looking good for the next race of 16km ladies! Regina took a whole 20 minutes off her 2012 mini-marathon 10km time…. proud! And Ann and Helena looked in complete comfort as they crossed the 10km finish line… even time for a few posing photos en-route and getting their names called out over the PA. Great buzz!

A massive thanks to Eoin and Anne-Claire who had the hardest task of the day in minding our 3 kids, so appreciate that guys. I think Isabelle wants to move in with you two! And great to see Declan, Karen and Lisa making themselves heard too! Tony and Peter, cheers for coming in to support us. Thanks to Steen for being there and sorting the photos for me. Mary, we missed you… hope the injury is on the mend!

Here are some pics of the madness.. some of these are from Peter Mooney’s Photo Stream on Flickr
